ST3 trainees Breast FRCR 2B preparatory course

Due to COVID restrictions, we are unable to run our FRCR 2b course the usual way. However, we have worked hard to move the course on to a virtual platform. It’s now even bigger and better, with our first virtual course accommodating 18 candidates, 3 observers and 8 examiners. We will be running it in our usual format with live tutorials, vivas and long cases. We are extremely grateful to all the examiners who have given up their time and shared their expertise to make this course another successful one.
